Moran Chaim - Finding Humanity in a Dystopian World

Living in a country where there is continual conflict, he discovered that there are no heroes in the pointless cycle of violence. His debut novel, a dystopian sci-fi, Human Again, touches on this theme, with riveting scenes that keep readers on the edge of their seats. As our author of the day, Chaim talks about Israel, why he picked cryo-freezing as a method to send his hero into the future and in which way his book is a bit of a warning sign.
